ghunchu'wI',

unfortunately you still haven't understood the gravity of the
situation, and you still obviously fail to realize what a person is
allowed to say about another person and what not. Perhaps I should
take the time to explain to you what is punishable by law to say about
someone. Perhaps I should..

But how could I expect you to ever understand ?

You see, I know what the limits are, because I'm an orthopaedic
surgeon, having treated thousands of patients so far, having worked in
the emergency departments without sleep or rest for 30 hours straight,
having come in contact with hundreds of people and their relatives in
distress, and through my interaction with them I learned how to talk,
even while others where crossing the line.

I know what the limits are, with regards to what one can or cannot
say, because I'm a specialist, having often to give my medical opinion
about other doctors' diagnoses and treatments, and I have learned how
to express my opinion respectfully, and within the boundaries of the
law.

I've learned to talk in a way that doesn't expose me to legal trouble,
because I know that in the real world, there are consequences.

I won't go into detail as to what exactly was said in that facebook
thread, only for one reason. Because one of the people involved is not
active on this list.

And unlike the moderator who disabled comments on that thread as soon
as I started defending myself, when I talk about a person I give him
the chance to reply. I don't gag him, the way the moderator on that
thread did.

But trust me, if what you (plural) wrote in that thread, was written
in Greece by Greeks, I *would* have sued, and there *would* be
consequences.

Now.. lets lay aside for a while, the real-world legal consequences of
a person's actions, and lets do some community talk.

It irritates me when someone who has almost never taught me anything,
refers to me as if he/she was ever my teacher. So lets set the record
straight.

There's only one person to whom I owe more that 90% of everything I
know; and that person is SuStel. SuStel is the one who has patiently
taught me, answering literally thousands of questions over a time span
of five years. Whatever skill I have in klingon, I owe it to SuStel.

So 90% of whatever skill I have is the result of SuStel's guidance.

The rest 10% comes from the following people: (the names are written
in random order)

It is only to SuStel and the people above, where I owe everything I
know. To the rest I owe nothing. So, the acceptance (or lack thereof)
of anyone else, to me means nothing.
